now, we're counting down to tonight's presidential debate. mitt romney's motorcade just pulled up at the debate hall. president obama's expected to arrive in denver any minute as well. we'll be talking with top supporters of each candidate. the former new york city mayor rudy giuliani, he'll join us live this hour. also we'll be hearing from both candidates' wives in special cnn interviews. today, by the way, is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. so what's it like spending the night with the romneys? i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> 34 days from the presidential election but much more importantly right now at least right now we've reached what may be the most decisive night of the 2012 campaign, the first presidential debate at the university of denver. after weeks of downplaying expectations, mitt romney's campaign insiders are finally opening up about what they really think can be accomplished tonight. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is in denver getting ready to set the scene. jim. >> reporter: wolf, the romney campaign sees the polls m
presidential debate, meanwhile mitt romney is off to the trail. we have two reports, we begin with nbc's peter alexander, he's with the romney campaign in boston, with a good morning to you, peter. what are you hearing about all the debate preps today. he o'clock najs that this is an important opportunity in her debate. people have a tendency to focus on the small things, like the color of a candidate's tie or the dramatic one liners, which is his need to get across the big picture message. he says if he does that, he thinks he can be effective over the course of the next three debates and ultimately win this thing. we heard this morning from governor chris christie of new jersey, i want to play you another clip from new jersey this morning. chris christ >> and so they're going start tuning in on wednesday night and when they do, governor romney's going to lay out his vision for a better and greater america and better opportunity for all of our citizens, and i think that's when you're going to see this race really start to tighten and move to governor romney's direction. come thursday morning,
. >> president barack obama and governor mitt romney preparing to face off in their first presidential debate. >> and here in denver, the candidates know what happens on this debate stage certainly could help sway the election. >> a president struggling with a slow economy, hoping to boost confidence in his leadership. >> i'm not fighting to create democratic and republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> a challenger fighting in the poll es trying to connect with average americans. after months of attacks on the campaign trial, it's time for these candidates to confront each other face to face. >> we will win this election, we will finish what we started! >> i will do better than this president has done for the american people! >> in colorado tonight, barack obama and mitt romney in their first presidential date. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward. >> what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> two men with different vision on issues voters care about most.
and the economy is set to be the topic of wednesday's presidential debate and mitt romney is going to try it tout his record at bain capital for a reason to pick him. the democrats are trying to peck up people who used to work bain capital, and a part of the election season, he was featured on a conference call with the now infamous, joe southic, a former employer of a bain company that later on claimed that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife and mitt romney deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claemd not to remember and we also heard from mr. foster at the democrat national convention earlier this month. >> bain took over the bill, they loaded it up with millions in debt and within months, they used some of that money to millions, within a decade the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. . >> as it turns out, mr. foster was actually regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel, but not at gst steel and as there are two sides to every story. one former executive at gst steel says that what really happened when bain capital ca
the first presidential debate of the 2012 election. there's a lot on the line for both candidates, of course. but for mitt romney, the stakes appear to be huge. "the washington post" reporting, "republican strategists fretting over obama's recent rise said the debates could be the last best chance for romney to deliver a decisive blow. change the narrative, steady his campaign." here to talk about that, a former political director to president george w. bush. also a romney supporter. matt, good afternoon to you, sir. >> great to be with you. >> is this the last best chance for governor romney? true or false? what do you think? >> i guess kind of true. it's a great opportunity. i think it's a big mistake for candidates, especially when they're running for president, to put all the marbles in a debate. because really what you want to do in a debate, is first of all, you don't want to be swinging so much for the fences that you make a lot of errors. i worked for president george w. bush, as you said, and in his first debate in 2004, a lot of people felt like he gave a subpar performance. and th
pawlenty's presidential campaign. anne marie, good afternoon to you. so now governor romney at his campaign headquarters today for some debate prep. we understand that that debate prep has turned into a full-scale dress rehearsal this afternoon. tomorrow he's on the campaign trail. is he ready for wednesday night? >> i think, i think so. i think it's going to be a great opportunity for governor romney to finally have his chance on the stage. to be up against president obama and i think he'll finally get an opportunity to cut through all the negative noise and the clutter that has been on the air waves and has been targeting voters this will be his chance to cut through the noise and speak directly to voters. >> governor romney down at least in nine recent swing state polls. most regard wednesday's debate at his last best chance to win over voters. how is his message or perhaps even his tone. how is it going to be different wednesday than what we've seen and heard so far? >> look, i mean i think he's going to get a chance to speak directly to voters. he's going to talk about this is a clear
president obama leading in key swing states, the presidential debates may be mitt romney's last, best chance to turn the race around and we wanted to find out what the romney-ryan plan is when they face off against obama and biden. we caught up with running mate paul ryan, saturday in derry, new hampshire. before we sat down for an exclusive interview, we spoke briefly as he was about to take the stage for a campaign town hall. >> chris: what do you think? just before you go out on stage, each time? >> president obama is taking us in the wrong direction and emerging market and i are offering them a different direction and i'm excited at the opportunity to give people the chance to pic that choice. that is what gets me excited about this. >> thank you so much for coming out, everybody... >> chris: welcome to fox news sunday. >> thanks, chris, welcome to new hampshire. >> chris: thank you. what does governor romney need to do wednesday night in the first debate. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. that is what we are doing. we owe the country a country clear cho
twice. we'll get right to it. we're 32 hours away from the first presidential debate. president obama and mitt romney taking the stage at the university of denver in colorado. a live picture. this inside that will. where the two men will face off for the first time. lost at stake for both candidates. according to our latest poll which is an average of five national polls it is tight race among likely voters the president has 49%, mitt romney at 46%. now both men in past moments wished they could have a do over. we recall a heated exchange between hillary clinton and president obama back in 2008's debate in south carolina. >> while i was working on those streets watching those folks see their jobs shipped overseas you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of walmart. i was fighting these fights. i was fighting these fights. knives fighting against those ideas when you were practicing law and representing your contributor in his slum landlord business, in inner city chicago. >> so, wolf blitzer, joe johns myself had an opportunity to ask questions of the candidate in myrtle beach
the presidential election. but is it really a swing state? is it closer than it looks as mitt romney is suggesting predicting today as you just heard in jim acosta's report that he will win pennsylvania? our senior political analyst, ron brownstein is here with us in "the situation room." he's the editor of "the national journal." is pennsylvania realistically possible for mitt romney? the polls show right now a ten-point gap between these two men. >> it will be a very different race if pennsylvania is really in play. the fact it's not in play though is kind of instructive. right now president obama seems safely ahead in all of the polling. pennsylvania is actually the kind of state that mitt romney's promise a year ago he was going to be able to put into play the same way john mccain's promise was supposedly that. the reason why pennsylvania has become so solid democratic they've won in each of the past five elections is largely because theuburbs outsi philadelphia, white collar, affluent, right of center economically, left of center social issues have moved decisively towards the democrats. orig
ryan, the vice presidential nominee, has actually helped romney's efforts to win the white house or wound up hurting romney's efforts to win the white house. where do you see it? >> well, i've been a big alarmist on the ryan question from the beginning. i thought it was a mistake to choose him. i thought it was a mistake even before choosing him to bolt this campaign to the ryan plan. the romney campaign needs to be about jobs and growth. the decision to make this campaign about medicare and medicaid which is what you do when you adopt the ryan plan much less put ryan on the ticket is a big mistake. i think the campaign is really suffering for it. >> you think democrats down ballot as they say, senatorial candidates, congressional candidates, are happy, donna, that paul ryan is on the ticket with romney? >> absolutely. he gives definition to what the republicans actually stand for. i mean, basically they want to, you know, create another system for medicare. and as president obama and the vice president today spoke out also about social security. so democrats are along the ryan b

a different party and you will get different answer. but the clock is ticking down. governor romney getting plenty of advice on how he should approach the president on that stage. the presidential debate commission -- the two men with stand side by side. critics a predicting the left-leaning media will portray romney as the loser no matter how he performs. bill, welcome back to the program. some are saying no matter what governor romney does tonight the headlines in the newspapers tomorrow will be -- you know, romney struggles to make it case. romney's campaign is in trouble. what say you? >> reporter: i think there are two different dispositions here. i'm irish. when i watch the debate i tend to think my guy lost unless he really creamed the other guy. way i think of these debates and the mainstream channels handle them is like the music man. president obama is like professor harold hill. he sold these people all these band uniforms and instruments and he has this krissy system that doesn't teach them how to play. then it's a climate i can scene at the end. the town, the mayor, they think
presidential debate. it will only be romney's first. the memo is actually quite praising of the president calling him one of the most talented political communicators in modern history. meyer says they're fully expecting a 90-minute attack aimed at tearing romney down. mr. obama's traveling press secretary is joking about the whole attempt to lower expectations saying well, he could just fall right off the stage. the president is up in basically all of the most recent polls. gallup has him at 50 to 44%. reuters has him up by 7 and even fox news has him up by 5. even some top romney officials are admitting he's a lousy candidate! according to politico this morning, republicans even some of those working for romney say the real problem is not the polls or the gaffes or the leaked 47% remark, it's just mitt romney. they say he's a great businessman but when it comes to leading a political campaign, he is just, plain unnatural. and planned parenthood is stepping up its attacks against the romney campaign. this week, voters in vi
would be is governor romney's -- governor etch-a-sketch, that is, his refusal to release a history of tax returns to be taken as a new standard and setting a new precedent for presidential candidates or should we take this as just one time just for him just for now? i'd like to see how both of them respond to that. >> what do you think mitt romney is going to say if he's asked that question. >> i think he'll say it's up to the individual. >> he will, he will, just as it was up to his father when his father released 11 or 12 years when he set the standard. >> if i was barack obama, i would remind the american people that we have employers who will require a drug test. we have employers that will ask for your facebook password. we have all kinds of standards that employers require of us that you would think actually seem more invasive to me rather than simply showing us that you pay taxes and you're within the law for the next 10 years or so. my personal opinion is we need a bill that says that when you take the nomination for your party, your tax returns become public records. >> i
for politics. 38 days until election day. four days until the first presidential debate. but these are the numbers that are really bearing down on the gop nominee. these are mitt romney's likability numbers in six key battleground stat states. topping our political headlines, mitt romney going after president obama on foreign policy today. in his weekly podcast, romney said the president is fumbling his response to events in the middle east. >> this week, when president obama was asked about the recent disruption and chaos and violence in the middle east, he said that these were merely bumps in the road. that casual assessment of shocking events reveals that the president really doesn't understand the gravity of the challenges that we face in the broader middle east. >> meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad, it takes aim at romney's experience at bain capital, spotlighting workers who said they lost their jobs because governor romney was more concerned about short-term profits than creating jobs. >> people need to know what mitt romney did to miriam, indiana
this is very confusing. is the romney campaign betting they can get through by just confusing the american public into submission? >> alex, if i were the kind of person who got depressed by a lack of specificity and seriousness in presidential politics i would be very depressed. this cycle you can judge? in different ways. the lack of specificity is ghouling for three reasons, two serious guys, two, the country has big challenges and three both campaigns are enunciated this principle on big important serious things, rather than have the candidate be specific at all about what they do, they say really it's better for the public to have this the rashed out with congress after i'm elected. the president says the same thing about social security reform. i find it unorthodox and maybe i need to cover a few more to cover the romney campaign, a major float of a proposal in a local television interview the day or two before the debate. seems like the $17,000 cap -- >> bucket. >> is actually, i think, an interesting idea, but it's not one that governor romney is apparently actually proposing and no
candidate appear more presidential? >> this is the ultimate test. whether mitt romney is standing next to president obama can convince the american people that they can envision him as president, and this is a delicate balancing act. it really affects how much candidates go on offense versus defense. the key is to be what might be called respectfully aggressive. to walk that line with -- when you are trying to attack and make a point that you don't overreach. that's the key question of the american people's mind. can this man, mitt romney, be president? how does he stand up next to a president on the stage? of course, president obama has a natural advantage in this because he is not running for president. he is president. >> all right. >> it is the key criteria, and campaigns shouldn't lose sight of that. >> we know this is a debates that revolves around domestic policy here. the other question is will mitt romney actually try to bring up libya into the debate because they've been so critical on the president? they think perhaps this is a weakness. >> it absolutely is. polls show it. w
